Hello Flight-Report readers, this month I started another flight to Hong Kong. I booked my ticket at Cathay Pacific Airways website. The whole flight involved a transit at Dusseldorf and London. This report will cover the the first leg from Munich to Dusseldorf with Air Berlin.

1. Part 1 MUC to DUS: You are here!
2. Part 2 DUS to HKG: Here!
3. Part 3 HKG to KOJ: Here!
4. Part 4 KOJ to HKG: Here!
5. Part 5 HKG to LHR: Here!

In the morning, I arrived at the airport with the S-Bahn at 9:00am. Air Berlin is a OneWorld carrier and utilizes the Terminal 1. With the Silver status of Cathay Pacific Airways, I used the Priority checkin counters with just 4 to 5 people queuing in front of me.

The security check was almost empty and I got through in no time. The boarding gate A26 is located exactly in front of the security check.

Boarding started at 10:05am and I was among the first few guys to broad the plane.
My seat, 25A. seat pitch is 30 inch which is fine for an hour flight. But could be quite uncomfortable for tall people.

Since September 2016, Air Berlin cut the complimentary beverage service on short haul flight. After the seatbelt sign was off, the crew came out again with the cart, where passengers were able to purchase snacks and drinks.

Seat pocket items.

Conclusion

For such a short hop, I really don't care about the beverage service. In general, I am quite satisfied with this flight and the most important thing was that Air Berlin sent me to the destination punctually.
